Braking is an imperative safety equipment system in a vehicle that averts any mishaps. The components of braking system convert the brake force applied by the driver into the required braking effect in an optimal manner, ensuring the vehicle is decelerated safely and comfortably comes to a halt if attempted. Most modern vehicles use a vacuum assisted brake system known as brake boosters that greatly increases the force applied to the vehicle's brakes by its operator. Manifold vacuum is generated by air flow from a running engine, which provides additional force. A brake booster is a round, black canister located at the rear of the engine compartment. It uses vacuum from the engine to enhance the force that the foot applies to the master cylinder. A brake force distribution system is used to equally distribute the amount of force among all wheels of the vehicle. It is used along with brake booster in a vehicle.
Ever-increasing production of vehicles with increased horsepower and torque coupled with the growing necessity of components to maneuver the vehicles safely supplemented by increase in demand for light-weight vehicles are projected to boost the automotive brake boosting and brake force distribution market during the forecast period. Growing demand for active vehicle safety technologies such as anti-lock braking system (ABS), traction control system (TCS), electronic stability program (ESP), and regenerative braking are pushing manufacturers to integrate these technologies with high-end brake booster systems. Factors such as stringent safety norms and a higher emphasis on performance and efficiency of vehicles have encouraged several manufacturers to focus on brake booster and brake distribution technology in the passenger car segment.
The automotive brake boosting and brake distribution market can be segmented in terms of vehicle type, mode of operation of vehicles, its type, and geography.
Automotive brake boosting and brake force distribution market witness demand from passenger vehicles (PV) and commercial vehicles (CV). Passenger vehicles typically includes hatchback cars, sedans, multi- purpose vehicles (MPV), and sport utility vehicles (SUV). Commercial vehicles include light-weight commercial vehicles (LCV) and heavy commercial vehicles (HCV).
Automotive brake boosting and brake force distribution market can be used in autonomous vehicles and semi-autonomous vehicles. An autonomous vehicle is a self-driving vehicle, which can drive itself and apply brakes itself, using various in-built technologies, actuators, and sensors. A semi-autonomous vehicle, on the other hand, requires the presence of a human driver to drive it while braking is carried out by human interaction. An autonomous vehicle requires a more powerful and technologically advanced brake boosting and distribution system than a semi-autonomous vehicle as it works without human interaction.
Automotive brake booster has two types as vacuum booster and hydraulic brake booster. A vacuum brake booster is a metal canister that contains a clever valve and a diaphragm. The hydraulic brake booster, on the other hand, uses hydraulic pressure generated by the power steering pump to provide the required power assistance. It is an enhanced function supported by the Electronic Stability Control Unit (ESC) in a vehicle's braking system.
Geographically, automotive brake boosting and brake force distribution market can be segmented as North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the World (ROW). Asia Pacific accounts for major share of the global automotive brake boosting and brake force distribution market, owing to the high adoption rate of automotive brake boosting and brake force distribution and the booming automotive sector leading to an increased production of vehicles with automotive brake boosting and brake force distribution, especially in China and India. Regions such as Europe, North America, and Japan have a significant share of the automotive industry in their economy. That factor is responsible for noteworthy adoption of advanced brake systems and growth in the global market as most of the vehicles manufactured in these regions are equipped with brake boosters and brake distribution systems along with latest braking technologies.
Some of the key players in the global automotive brake boosting and brake force distribution market are Continental AG, Denso Corporation, Aisin Seiki Co. Ltd., Carlisle Brake & Friction, FTE Automotive, TRW Automotive, and Robert Bosch Gmbh.
